Praise
"Radosh's newest book can't be a facilely dismissed as one might like. About half of COMMIES is yet another red-diaper memoir, some of it vivid and charming, most of it familiar and unexceptional. The book's second half, however, requires more attention....COMMIES contains a critique that must be dealt with; Radosh's arguments may not convince, but they do trouble the waters."
From the Publisher
Editors Note Commies is a brilliant memoir of growing up in the culture of radicalism. But it also about the hard decisions faced by those professing a radical faith. For Radosh himself, the crisis came when he concluded in his authoritative book on Julius and Ethel Rosenberg that the couple (in whose behalf he had demonstrated as a boy) had indeed been guilty of spying. Attacked as a traitor, Radosh began to question his political commitments. His disillusionment climaxed in the 1980s when he traveled through Central America as a journalist and historian and ran into his old comrades there still searching for the revolution.
